Like for all intensive quantities that evolve, the Lagrangian is proportional to the square of the intensive quantity. The minus sign in the expression is the same minus sign that appears also in c 2 t 2 −x 2 : it results from the mixing of electric and magnetic fields that is due to boosts. The Lagrangian density can be used to define the classical action of the electromagnetic field: ε 1 2 S = ???? 0 E2 − B dtdV . (19) 2 2μ0 * There is in fact a third Lorentz invariant, much less known. It is specific to the electromagnetic field and Copyright © Christoph Schiller June 1990–May 2013 As usual, the action measures the change occurring in a system; it thus defines the amount of change that occurs when field lines move.
